Our brother Michael Abraham's program and approach to professional development is exceptionally well-delivered and engaging on top of being useful and effective. I am especially impressed by his thorough use of multiple sources of multimedia which connect the strategies to taught to real-world examples. Our school's (Annoor Islamic School) teaching staff have gained a robust understanding of effective behavior management and enabled us to have a decrease in classroom disruptions and increase in on-task behavior.

Brother Michael's behavior management program lives up to its name. It has become an indispensable asset for Al Huda Private Schools. His practical solutions and effective strategies focused on non-verbal communication and the subtleties of adult-child interaction has equipped our educators with the much-needed tools to efficiently manage and redirect behavior. It's the kind of practical expertise our school has been longing for. I recommend all Islamic Schools to benefit from it.

This was a very much needed and inspiring training. The instructor was engaging, friendly and dynamic. It was apparent that he was knowledgeable and had experience in the classroom. It included not only the theoretical approaches to behavior management but also included real-world, real-time examples which allowed us to put the theories into perspective and practice. Definitely wish this was available to all educators, new and old.

This was one of the most effective PD sessions I've ever attended on behavior management! Br.Michael utilized a variety of media (PPT, videos, role play, etc.) in order to convey the material, making it even more accessible. Although some of the information may seem like common sense, seeing how/when to apply it was extremely beneficial. This is my 10th year teaching and I'm excited to employ many of the strategies to this upcoming year!
